Boris Johnson says Yes!
Including todays announcement from the GLA, the diamond jubilee bridge now has all 3 planning consents required and efforts are underway with regard to funding (with positive inroads being made) to make this a reality.
Plans for a £22million foot and cycle bridge across the Thames in London, designed by One-World Design, has been given the green light
The crossing, dubbed the Diamond Jubilee Bridge, has been approved by Hammersmith and Fulham council’s planning committee.
The scheme, designed by architect Chris Medland of One-World Design, includes a 170m-long bridge to connect Imperial Wharf and Chelsea Harbour, where the Queen boarded the royal barge for the diamond jubilee flotilla last year, to Battersea on the south side of the river.
It will be made of three spans with three arches and will be open 24-hours-a-day.
